In summer, cool down in the refreshing waters of Lake Eildon. Take a dip, go fishing, water-ski, boat, sail, canoe or hire a house boat for a relaxing weekend escape.

Junior Ranger activities run over the summer school holidays and are a great opportunity for your 6-12 year-old kids to learn more about nature. From discovery walks to outdoor games and detective sessions, Junior Rangers will explore the park and learn how to care for the environment.

With milder temperatures, autumn is a perfect time to camp at Lake Eildon National Park. The Fraser camping area can accommodate tents and some caravans and camper vans. All campsites are un-powered. Houseboats are a great alternative to camping and can be hired from local companies.

Lake Eildon offers some of the best winter hikes in Victoria. Take a short stroll or explore some of the longer hikes in milder temperatures and much greener surroundings.

Spring is a great time to explore Lake Eildon on foot. The mosaic of wildflowers is a show-stopper - and keep an eye out for foraging kangaroos and echidnas.

Important Information

Lake Eildon National Park was once the centre of a gold rush and abandoned mine shafts are a real danger in the Jerusalem and Fraser Blocks. Do not attempt to enter these structures. They are unstable and may be home to bat colonies.

A five-knot speed limit applies within 50 metres of the shore, other vessels, navigation aids, swimmers and fixed or floating structures, and within 50 metres of vessels displaying a dive flag. Keep an eye out for hazards and other vessels. Refer to the Victorian Recreational Boating Safety Handbook for information on staying safe while boating.

  • Always do some research before heading out for your journey. Visit the parks website for up to date information on the current conditions.
  • Stay safe and get the most out of your park visit by preparing for natural hazards and other outdoor risks. You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of those in your care.
  • Wear suitable footwear and ensure to wear appropriate clothing to protect yourself from the elements..
  • Plan ahead and ensure to take enough food and water for your journey.
  • Always stay on the marked tracks where possible. Never climb fences, they are there for your own safety.
  • Please consider the environment, take your rubbish with you or place in the bins provided. We want to ensure these beautiful places are still here for our future generations to enjoy.
  • Ensure to let a responsible adult know of your plans and report back into them once you have finished exploring for the day.
